Forum: petabox Subject: Re: Supplier for the 1u racks?

At UC Berkeley we are also working on a large storage system and having trouble with 1U cases. Short of having a custom case designed (which we are considering) we are looking at the RM1012 from Synergy Global Inc, which is an inexpensive case for 3x 3.5 plus 1x 5.25. With a set of rails you can install 4x 3.5 disks. It's a bit long, but can convert to center-mount and has room for one PCI card (with ribbon cable riser) if you want to experiment with 1000bT instead of just 100bT (as we do).

[No ties to the company other than we bought one case so far.]

Followup: This case has a soft power switch but no reset button.
